BEAVERS: November 18 Session

Hello all,

Tomorrow we will be trying out a new Scouting science themed night.  1st Kanata Beavers were chosen to pilot the Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) program being developed by Scouts with funds received from Imperial Oil foundation & ExxonMobil Canada ( We will be meeting at our usual time of 6pm at Stephen Leacock Public School.

We will be learning about the science of sound. The session is titled “Sound of an Orchestra”.  At the end, we will try and ask the Beavers some review questions about the session  such as “what did they like” and “what did they not like” about the session. As part of the pilot we need to provide feedback on the sessions to Scouts Canada.  If after the session, your child provides feedback to you, like in the car on the way home (I know Connor does this often!!), feel free to drop me an email or a quick call. The leaders of course will be providing feedback as well. All input, including yours is welcome.

Finally, we will be doing closing a little early as I have a few items that need to be handed out.

  • Indoor shoes need to be in the gym; please bring an extra pair of appropriate footwear;
  • At the end of the evening, children will not be allowed to leave the gym until a parent is present.  This means a leader needs to SEE the parent.  Please come into the gym to pick up your child.
Looking forward to a fun-filled science evening!!
